Richmond Below-zero temperatures and wind gusts could create wind chills of minus 30 degrees in some parts of Virginia on Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings from the Alleghany Highlands southeast to the Virginia Piedmont, including the Roanoke and New River valleys, and areas west of the Blue Ridge. The warnings are in effect from Monday evening through Tuesday afternoon.

The frigid temperatures could send more homeless people to shelters.

Capt. Duane Burleigh with the Salvation Army in Harrisonburg says the organization is prepared to handle such situations.

He says the main shelter has 72 beds for men, women and families. If the shelter reaches capacity, the Salvation Army can open its church as a shelter.
